SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM TO READ ABOUT OUR RAFFLE!
An original dramatic miniseries combining world mythology to tell a story about fate, love, family, mortality, the origins of man and the end of the world.
No big deal, right?
We produced a first season of 9 episodes, on virtually no budget (THANK YOU to our original Indiegogo backers who helped us at least feed everyone!), for a total running length of just about one hour (www.mythosseries.com). Season 1 functions as a proof of concept, if you will. We described it as American Gods meets Never Let Me Go. Mythology serves as the root of the story, but while the themes are cosmic, the characters are very human. Just so happens these characters’ drama extends back about, oh, ten thousand years.
Produce our 30-minute pilot for Season 2 in the fall of 2013.
Though we have won some awards, screened internationally, and continue to build our fan base, it would be impossible for us to produce our entire second season without somebody cutting us a large check (anybody? Bueller??). With a total of ten 30-minute episodes planned, a cast of thousands (... almost), and international settings, our second season is pretty much the definition of “epic.” We need personnel and resources that are just not available to us yet. Producing the first episode at top-notch quality is TOTALLY feasible, however, with your help!
Here’s a breakdown of where our budget will go:
$3400 – camera, lighting, sound rentals + minimal crew salaries
$3000 – location rentals, parking fees, etc.
$2700 – minimal salaries for cast (1-3 actors a day) and crew (4-5 people per day) for 8 days
$2000 – food for our cast and crew for 8 days
$2000 – art department (costumes, props, materials, set dressing, +
- $800 – SFX and contingency money
$500 – insurance
$300 – original score
$300 – transportation (gas, trains, car rentals)

Mythos S2 is the continuing story of Morgan, once known as the stoic Athena, whose legendary past changed the course of history. After turning her back on the Allfather she’s served for thousands of years and returning to her earth-god origins, she realizes she’ll have to fight one last time to save everything – and everyone – she loves.
Mythos tells a unique, female-centric story and features a dynamic, diverse cast of characters, each of whom are complex and powerful, yet strikingly human. S2 also expands the scope of the Mythos world, and that means new mythological characters! S2 also relies heavily on flashback sequences, depicting moments in the long-distant past that grew into the legends we know.
